Easter Chick Craft: Colorful Place Holders

OH. MY. GOSH. Cutest Easter place holders EVER! I must make these cute chicks from Crafts by Amanda @amandaformaro

When we think about the cutesy crafts for Easter, bunnies and chicks spring to mind. This Easter chick craft is full of color and can and should be totally personalized. Easter is a holiday where people get together to celebrate family, religious beliefs, and togetherness. The holiday almost always is celebrated with a feast with many people around the table. So I’ve put together these cute place holders that the kids will love and the adults will smile over.

OMG so CUTE! I am so totally making these for Easter - Colorful Place Holders from Crafts by Amanda @amandaformaro

I originally made this Easter chick craft for Joann Fabric and Craft Stores via DecoArt. They asked me to create a fun Easter project using Craftsmart paint. I actually am a big fan of Craftsmart paint and highly recommend it for kid’s crafts. It’s also great for adult projects too. It goes on nicely and there are quite a few colors to choose from.

I cannot wait to make these, they are too sweet! Love the colors! Easter Chick Place Holders from Crafts by Amanda @amandaformaro

To make this Easter chick craft, you can print off the full instructions below. The basic run down is this:

Gently sand the shine off the spoons, dust them off and paint them.

I used a block of floral foam to hold them while they dried. Add white polka dots up the handles.

Paint terra cotta pots white and paint the rims with the colored paint. Add matching polka dots. Cut floral foam into small squares and glue them inside the pots.

Cut pieces of card stock for the name tags. Write names on and add the “hands” using your finger dipped in paint. Insert the spoon chicks into the floral foam. Tie ribbon into bows and glue to the neck. Fill with tissue paper and glue on the name tags!
